On August 5, "peaceful protesters" seized several administrative buildings in Almaty, the presidential residence, the city hall, the international airport, and then set them on fire.

A huge number of shops were looted and a large number of various vehicles burned.

A state of emergency was introduced in the country, and President Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev requested emergency assistance from the CSTO.
